Review –

Being a Maharashtrian it is extremely difficult for me to critically review any work on the life of Shivaji. Shivaji is revered by us as the greatest among the Indian kings. So rather than writing ab...more

अंगावर काटा येतो , रक्त उसळायला लागत ,आतून आवाज येतो हर हर महादेव !
red this book several times, first time red when i was in 4 std. , give me strength to fight against all odds...
If you have been desperate to read about Shivaji and had trouble reading refined Marathi then this might be your best hope. This is not really a biography but more a dramatized presentation of Shivaji's life.

I have enjoyed reading this book, mostly because I had wanted to read about him for a long time. If you are well conversant with Marathi then you should read the original "Shrimanyogi" by Ranjit Desai. This book is a translation and doesn't really live up to the original book. The translati...more

It is one thrilling ride.. through history and mystery !
What is the most charming facet of the book is its sensitivity. The way Ranjit Desai handles his pen is definitely as worthy as how the great Shivaji would have had handled his mighty sword.

This is an ode to the magnum-opus called Shivaji, not just as a king and a warrior but also as a person !

I recently completed reading this book. I found it very beautiful and more importantly the feelings erupt from us while reading it. The discriptions made in this book are amazing and will definately make you cry. While reading we can actually imagine the entire scene running in front of our eyes. Another important feature is being a non maharshtrian i could read and understand the language, so the language used by the author is very simple. So my request to those people who are non maharashtrian...more

There are various books in marathi on Shivaji, no doubt his life is full of all thats required for a novel that there is hardly anyone who wont like to write about him....have gone through few of such books on him already, as compared to "Raja Shivchhatrapati" by Babasaheb Purandare,felt this is not that elaborative & detailed...although its rich enough to portray the great kings life n almost all aspects in it

i was lucky to spend some memorable moments with ranjeetdada over a period of time. he used to get stuck in to the subject he is writing about, i`ve seen him doing that when he was handling " RAJA RAVIVERMA". this was in htl gokul,kolhapur, maharashtra.
Nitin Kulkarni
this is the best fiction,or rather imaginary book based on great maratha warrior chhatrpati shivaji...... i m saying that because its not written as history...... but a story.
This book inspired me in my tough times of life... i thank the author for writing it!!!
Heart touching saga of the great Maratha Warrior. A must read for every history lover.

ranjeet desai's humour to historical events and applying human emotions to people of that time is a nice experience to read ..
Simply amazing!

Instead some of the incidents are depicted differently than I read earlier,book is very good to read and is one,I would like,to be in my bookshelf.

Starts out a bit slow, but draws you in as the story progresses. Takes a pragmatic look at the life of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Doesn't potray him as a demigod but a human being who overcame tremendous odds to set an example for generations to come. Highly recommended for anybody with an interest in history.
Ok writing [repetitive many times].
